  1. Greece is beautiful. There is so much to do and see. Hopefully things will improve so that Greece will be safe for tourists soon. We had planned to be in Greece this summer. Waiting for safer travel. If things improve soon, you may find me on a Greek island.
  2. Never and always are too restrictive. Things change and so do we. Cruising has certainly changed during the pandemic. Speculation on what was past experiences may be ridiculous at this time. I can only reflect on what I liked or disliked on past cruises. The future of cruising will be different. I liked most cruises. Some were better than others. You go with expectations and hope they are met or exceeded. Celebrity usually is good. However, my most recent experience on Reflection turned me off. Too crowded, too many cutbacks, and spotty service. Celebrity added more cabins creating u
  3. Sadly, the big losers are the people who work for the cruise lines or are involved with getting guests to and from the cruise. Longshoremen, checkin staff, local transportation, airport staff, ubers, taxis, local hotels and restaurants, rental cars, etc. are the biggest losers. The cruise line employs lots of people. However, they are not victims of the cruise line. They are victims of the pandemic. They are or were working in businesses closed by the pandemic. There are so many people, not just travel workers, who have lost jobs. The virus has made many people victims even if they haven
  4. CDC says no cruises in United States. They are protecting Americans. Lobbying to sail on a cruise is open from other countries. However, if you check most of those countries are Level red warning. Do not visit. CDC cannot protect those people who leave on their own accord. I will stay home.
  5. cruise lines should not ask potential guests to involve in politics. It is WRONG? oceania should respect the CDC rulings. The CDC doesn’t make their recommendations without good reason. CDC aim is to protect Americans.
  6. Asking Captains Club guests to get involved in political actions is WRONG! if the cruise company has issues with politics, do not ask potential guests too fight your battles. Celebrity should respect the CDC. CDC is protecting Americans.
  7. Got email offer today that included lots of stuff free including “kids sail free.” Is it just on some cruises? Or are kids really banned on all cruises? NCL is known as a cruise for young families. Are they ditching that?
  8. August cruises are showing no cabins...waitlisted only. Will probably cancel officially soon. and so it goes again...book, cancel, and rebook. Starting to feel like I am on a constantly spinning loop that never stops.
  9. Watched it. Sadly, the crew and passengers were misinformed and mistreated. That was the cruise to hell.
  10. Sounds too much last minute. If they canceled most cruises, why book these? If something is too cheap, there is a reason.
  11. My original book by date was March 2021, sail by March 2022. I did book a summer 2021 cruise that is canceled. Since my original book by date is gone, my travel agent asked for extension of dates. Book by end of 2021, sail by end of 2022. Seems ok since nothing is sailing now. The booking and rebooking is getting old fast. thinking that it doesn't make sense that Oceania would turn away a booking. Ask your TA to request an extension. If they refuse, they will be the losers. Oceania doesn't need negative experiences. when a business treats customers unfairly, people stop doing business
  12. Last year when my Into the midnight Sun cruise was canceled, I was torn...take the refund or get the 125% fcc. I really wanted to take that cruise and still do. My first thought was to rebook for June 2021. However, when I looked at prices for that cruise, the price increases were ridiculous. Even with the extra fcc, the rebooked cruise would cost more than the fcc. We asked for the refund. Had the prices remained the same, we would’ve rebooked. Now we would’ve been really upset if we couldn’t get a refund promptly. We didn’t realize at the time that the pandemic would persist this long.
